@roguecoyote That's funny....just this morning I had Binti out for her first thing in the morning pee and the grass was still wet. She walked a little then went back to the street without peeing. She returned to the grass to pee and when she came back to the street she had to sniff each of her OWN pawprints!!!!! These guys are a crack up!!!!
Heartworm and Flea treatment comparison , cost?
I have 3 basenjis, and when I traveled a lot and they were boarded, and I I used Heartguard for the heartworms and NexGard for flea control,which is very expensive. MY pack stay out side, they prefer that. I bath them occasionally , and we dog park about 2 a month, other than that they are not exposed to other dogs.
What do most of you owners use for Flea protection that's less expensive and works well?

For Heartworm I use NuHeart ivermectin made in NZ. About $13.00 for a 6 pack of pills, available on line and without a scrip from the Vet. I give one pill every 5 to 6 weeks year roung. Or you can use liquid ivermectin, I believe the dose is 1/2 cc every 6 wks, even cheaper.
For fleas/ticks I use Frontline Plus. Lucky that we don't have a real flea problem, so only have to use 2 or 3 times a year.
I would not use any of the chewable flea meds, I do not believe they are safe
